Norway wins biathlon World Cup relay

Norway wins biathlon World Cup relay

Five-time Olympic champion Ole Einar Bjoerndalen anchored Norway to an overwhelming victory in a biathlon World Cup men's relay race Thursday.
The Norwegian quartet led from start to finish and covered the 4x7.5-kilometer distance in 1 hour, 24 minutes, 54 seconds without missing any targets on the shooting range.
Germany was 1 minute, 20.2 seconds behind in second place. Austria was third, 1:43.1 back.
Bjoerndalen, one of the top biathletes of all time, had his first victory of the season.
The Norwegians needed to reload only five times, including Bjoerndalen, who had to do it twice in the last passing through the shooting range. But they were all on target and were also fast in the cross-country skiing.
